  4. 4. AGRICULTURAL MANAGEMENT PRACTICES GRADES 10-12 MATHEMATICSFOREWORD by thE ministER Our national curriculum is the culmination of our efforts over a period of seventeen years to transform the curriculum bequeathed to us by apartheid. From the start of democracy we have built our curriculum on the values that inspired our Constitution (Act 108 of 1996). the Preamble to the Constitution states that the aims of the Constitution are to: • heal the divisions of the past and establish a society based on democratic values, social justice and fundamental human rights; • improve the quality of life of all citizens and free the potential of each person; • lay the foundations for a democratic and open society in which government is based on the will of the people and every citizen is equally protected by law; and• build a united and democratic South Africa able to take its rightful place as a sovereign state in the family of nations.Education and the curriculum have an important role to play in realising these aims.in 1997 we introduced outcomes-based education to overcome the curricular divisions of the past, but the experienceof implementation prompted a review in 2000. This led to the first curriculum revision: the Revised National CurriculumStatement Grades R-9 and the National Curriculum Statement Grades 10-12 (2002).Ongoing implementation challenges resulted in another review in 2009 and we revised the Revised NationalCurriculum Statement (2002) to produce this document.From 2012 the two 2002 curricula, for Grades R-9 and Grades 10-12 respectively, are combined in a single documentand will simply be known as the National Curriculum Statement Grades R-12. the National Curriculum Statement forGrades R-12 builds on the previous curriculum but also updates it and aims to provide clearer specification of what is to be taught and learnt on a term-by-term basis.the National Curriculum Statement Grades R-12 accordingly replaces the subject statements, Learning ProgrammeGuidelines and subject Assessment Guidelines with the(a) Curriculum and Assessment Policy statements (CAPs) for all approved subjects listed in this document;(b) National policy pertaining to the programme and promotion requirements of the National Curriculum Statement Grades R-12; and(c) National Protocol for Assessment Grades R-12.MRS ANGIE MOTSHEKGA, MPMINISTER OF BASIC EDUCATIONCAPS

  8. 8. MATHEMATICS GRADES 10-12sECTION 1INTRODUCTION TO THE Curriculum and Assessment Policy StatementS forMATHEMATICS gradeS 10-121.1 BackgroundThe National Curriculum Statement Grades R-12 (NCS) stipulates policy on curriculum and assessment in theschooling sector.To improve implementation, the National Curriculum Statement was amended, with the amendments coming intoeffect in January 2012. A single comprehensive Curriculum and Assessment Policy document was developed foreach subject to replace Subject Statements, Learning Programme Guidelines and Subject Assessment Guidelinesin Grades R-12.1.2 Overview(a) The National Curriculum Statement Grades R-12 (January 2012) represents a policy statement for learning and teaching in South African schools and comprises the following: (i) Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statements for each approved school subject; (ii) The policy document, National policy pertaining to the programme and promotion requirements of the National Curriculum Statement Grades R-12; and (iii) The policy document, National Protocol for Assessment Grades R-12 (January 2012).(b) The National Curriculum Statement Grades R-12 (January 2012) replaces the two current national curricula statements, namely the (i) Revised National Curriculum Statement Grades R-9, Government Gazette No. 23406 of 31 May 2002, and (ii) National Curriculum Statement Grades 10-12 Government Gazettes, No. 25545 of 6 October 2003 and No. 27594 of 17 May 2005.(c) The national curriculum statements contemplated in subparagraphs b(i) and (ii) comprise the following policy documents which will be incrementally repealed by the National Curriculum Statement Grades R-12 (January 2012) during the period 2012-2014: (i) The Learning Area/Subject Statements, Learning Programme Guidelines and Subject Assessment Guidelines for Grades R-9 and Grades 10-12; (ii) The policy document, National Policy on assessment and qualifications for schools in the General Education and Training Band, promulgated in Government Notice No. 124 in Government Gazette No. 29626 of 12 February 2007; (iii) The policy document, the National Senior Certificate: A qualification at Level 4 on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF), promulgated in Government Gazette No.27819 of 20 July 2005;CAPS 3
  9. 9. MATHEMATICS GRADES 10-12 (iv) The policy document, An addendum to the policy document, the National Senior Certificate: A qualification at Level 4 on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF), regarding learners with special needs, published in Government Gazette, No.29466 of 11 December 2006, is incorporated in the policy document, National policy pertaining to the programme and promotion requirements of the National Curriculum Statement Grades R-12; and (v) The policy document, An addendum to the policy document, the National Senior Certificate: A qualification at Level 4 on the National Qualifications Framework (NQF), regarding the National Protocol for Assessment (Grades R-12), promulgated in Government Notice No.1267 in Government Gazette No. 29467 of 11 December 2006.(d) The policy document, National policy pertaining to the programme and promotion requirements of the National Curriculum Statement Grades R-12, and the sections on the Curriculum and Assessment Policy as contemplated in Chapters 2, 3 and 4 of this document constitute the norms and standards of the National Curriculum Statement Grades R-12. It will therefore, in terms of section 6A of the South African Schools Act, 1996 (Act No. 84 of 1996,) form the basis for the Minister of Basic Education to determine minimum outcomes and standards, as well as the processes and procedures for the assessment of learner achievement to be applicable to public and independent schools.1.3 General aims of the South African Curriculum(a) The National Curriculum Statement Grades R-12 gives expression to the knowledge, skills and values worth learning in South African schools. This curriculum aims to ensure that children acquire and apply knowledge and skills in ways that are meaningful to their own lives. In this regard, the curriculum promotes knowledge in local contexts, while being sensitive to global imperatives.(b) The National Curriculum Statement Grades R-12 serves the purposes of: • equipping learners, irrespective of their socio-economic background, race, gender, physical ability or intellectual ability, with the knowledge, skills and values necessary for self-fulfilment, and meaningful participation in society as citizens of a free country; • providing access to higher education; • facilitating the transition of learners from education institutions to the workplace; and • providing employers with a sufficient profile of a learner’s competences.(c) The National Curriculum Statement Grades R-12 is based on the following principles: • Social transformation: ensuring that the educational imbalances of the past are redressed, and that equal educational opportunities are provided for all sections of the population; • Active and critical learning: encouraging an active and critical approach to learning, rather than rote and uncritical learning of given truths; • High knowledge and high skills: the minimum standards of knowledge and skills to be achieved at each grade are specified and set high, achievable standards in all subjects; • Progression: content and context of each grade shows progression from simple to complex; 4 CURRICULUM AND ASSESSMENT POLICY STATEMENT (CAPS)
  10. 10. MATHEMATICS GRADES 10-12 • Human rights, inclusivity, environmental and social justice: infusing the principles and practices of social and environmental justice and human rights as defined in the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa. The National Curriculum Statement Grades R-12 is sensitive to issues of diversity such as poverty, inequality, race, gender, language, age, disability and other factors; • Valuing indigenous knowledge systems: acknowledging the rich history and heritage of this country as important contributors to nurturing the values contained in the Constitution; and • Credibility, quality and efficiency: providing an education that is comparable in quality, breadth and depth to those of other countries.(d) The National Curriculum Statement Grades R-12 aims to produce learners that are able to: • identify and solve problems and make decisions using critical and creative thinking; • work effectively as individuals and with others as members of a team; • organise and manage themselves and their activities responsibly and effectively; • collect, analyse, organise and critically evaluate information; • communicate effectively using visual, symbolic and/or language skills in various modes; • use science and technology effectively and critically showing responsibility towards the environment and the health of others; and • demonstrate an understanding of the world as a set of related systems by recognising that problem solving contexts do not exist in isolation.(e) Inclusivity should become a central part of the organisation, planning and teaching at each school. This can only happen if all teachers have a sound understanding of how to recognise and address barriers to learning, and how to plan for diversity. The key to managing inclusivity is ensuring that barriers are identified and addressed by all the relevant support structures within the school community, including teachers, District-Based Support Teams, Institutional-Level Support Teams, parents and Special Schools as Resource Centres. To address barriers in the classroom, teachers should use various curriculum differentiation strategies such as those included in the Department of Basic Education’s Guidelines for Inclusive Teaching and Learning (2010).CAPS 5

  13. 13. MATHEMATICS GRADES 10-12sECTION 2IntroductionIn Chapter 2, the Further Education and Training (FET) Phase Mathematics CAPS provides teachers with a definitionof mathematics, specific aims, specific skills, focus of content areas and the weighting of content areas.2.1 What is Mathematics?Mathematics is a language that makes use of symbols and notations for describing numerical, geometric andgraphical relationships. It is a human activity that involves observing, representing and investigating patterns andqualitative relationships in physical and social phenomena and between mathematical objects themselves. It helps todevelop mental processes that enhance logical and critical thinking, accuracy and problem solving that will contributein decision-making.Mathematical problem solving enables us to understand the world (physical, social and economic)around us, and, most of all, to teach us to think creatively.2.2 Specific Aims1. To develop fluency in computation skills without relying on the usage of calculators.2. Mathematical modeling is an important focal point of the curriculum. Real life problems should be incorporated into all sections whenever appropriate. Examples used should be realistic and not contrived. Contextual problems should include issues relating to health, social, economic, cultural, scientific, political and environmental issues whenever possible.3. To provide the opportunity to develop in learners the ability to be methodical, to generalize, make conjectures and try to justify or prove them.4. To be able to understand and work with number system.5. To show Mathematics as a human creation by including the history of Mathematics.6. To promote accessibility of Mathematical content to all learners. It could be achieved by catering for learners with different needs.7. To develop problem-solving and cognitive skills. Teaching should not be limited to “how”but should rather feature the “when” and “why” of problem types. Learning procedures and proofs without a good understanding of why they are important will leave learners ill-equipped to use their knowledge in later life.8. To prepare the learners for further education and training as well as the world of work.2.3 Specific SkillsTo develop essential mathematical skills the learner should:• develop the correct use of the language of Mathematics;• collect, analyse and organise quantitative data to evaluate and critique conclusions; 8 CURRICULUM AND ASSESSMENT POLICY STATEMENT (CAPS)
  14. 14. MATHEMATICS GRADES 10-12• use mathematical process skills to identify, investigate and solve problems creatively and critically;• use spatial skills and properties of shapes and objects to identify, pose and solve problems creatively and critically;• participate as responsible citizens in the life of local, national and global communities; and• communicate appropriately by using descriptions in words, graphs, symbols, tables and diagrams.2.4 Focus of Content AreasMathematics in the FET Phase covers ten main content areas. Each content area contributes towards the acquisitionof the specific skills. The table below shows the main topics in the FET Phase.The Main Topics in the FET Mathematics Curriculum 1. Functions 2. Number Patterns, Sequences, Series 3. Finance, growth and decay 4. Algebra 5. Differential Calculus 6. Probability 7. Euclidean Geometry and Measurement 8. Analytical Geometry 9. Trigonometry 10. Statistics2.5 Weighting of Content AreasThe weighting of mathematics content areas serves two primary purposes: firstly the weighting gives guidance onthe amount of time needed to address adequately the content within each content area; secondly the weighting givesguidance on the spread of content in the examination (especially end of the year summative assessment).CAPS 9

All learners passing through this phase acquire a functioning knowledgeof the Mathematics that empowers them to make sense of society. It ensures access to an extended study of themathematical sciences and a variety of career paths.In the FET Phase, learners should be exposed to mathematical experiences that give them many opportunities todevelop their mathematical reasoning and creative skills in preparation for more abstract mathematics in Higher/Tertiary Education institutions. 10 CURRICULUM AND ASSESSMENT POLICY STATEMENT (CAPS)
  16. 16. MATHEMATICS GRADES 10-12sECTION 3IntroductionChapter 3 provides teachers with:• specification of content to show progression;• clarification of content with teaching guidelines; and• allocation of time.3.1 Specification of Content to show ProgressionThe specification of content shows progression in terms of concepts and skills from Grade 10 to 12 for each contentarea. However, in certain topics the concepts and skills are similar in two or three successive grades. The clarificationof content gives guidelines on how progression should be addressed in these cases. The specification of contentshould therefore be read in conjunction with the clarification of content.CAPS 11

MATHEMATICS GRADES 10-123.2 Content Clarification with teaching guidelinesIn Chapter 3, content clarification includes:• teaching guidelines;• sequencing of topics per term; and• pacing of topics over the year.• Each content area has been broken down into topics. The sequencing of topics within terms gives an idea of how content areas can be spread and re-visited throughout the year.• The examples discussed in the Clarification Column in the annual teaching plan which follows are by no means a complete representation of all the material to be covered in the curriculum. They only serve as an indication of some questions on the topic at different cognitive levels. Text books and other resources should be consulted for a complete treatment of all the material.• The order of topics is not prescriptive, but ensure that part of trigonometry is taught in the first term and more than six topics are covered / taught in the first two terms so that assessment is balanced between paper 1 and 2. 16 CURRICULUM AND ASSESSMENT POLICY STATEMENT (CAPS)
